Summer Computing for College
Strong written communication and computer skills are a necessity for students who attend college. In two- weeks, students advance their computer skills in internet access, email, and research, word processing tasks, and scanning with various formats. Students learn to search and download e-texts. Effective note taking skills are integrated into the classes. Demonstrations of web-based college management software will be provided.
Programs used include MSWord, Outlook, Excel, and PowerPoint & Kurzweil. Students should be current users of Windows with JAWs or Zoom text software. Students should bring PDAs and/or laptop computers they will be using for college to this training. Sessions offered during the summer and in January. Call for details.
